Conducive and Productive atmosphere
A day when we worked and slept over due to some problems including power failure.
I learned how to also work in tensed condition sometimes so as to achieve the best result

The management was fair and co-workers were friendly and helpful. We worked as a team.

The hardest part is when we could not be through on time as planned.

The most enjoyable was when everything worked as planne. I learned how to handle Liquid Nitrogen and use it to preserve biological specimen. also on how to use spectrophotometer-quantitative measurement of the reflection or transmission properties of a material as a function of wavelength.
Pros
There were free lunches and other incentives
Cons
I worked extra hours but sometimes with remuneration.

Academic environment with freedom for private practice
Get to my office as early as 8.00am, Prepare my lecture notes for my students. Give practical classes which may involve more than two groups of 30 students each. This will take me till around 6.00pm in the evening.
There are days I will not have classes, and I will have time for my research work and other administrative engagements.
